Much speculation had been made about weather or not the sale was actually true, as the word throughout the media claimed that a sale was nothing more than a rumor.

White also very openly denied the rumors when confronted about them, the UFC even went as far as issuing a memo to it’s employees that a sale of the company should be the least of they’re worries.

The UFC just wrapped up it’s biggest week in company history, as it’s International Fight Week has concluded after last night’s (July 9, 2016) massive UFC 200 event that had it’s fair share of misfortunes leading up to the event.
